Planning your New Year’s Eve

This year, New Year’s Day is a Tuesday, which means you will still have three days of work left to complete before you get another weekend. Bear that in mind.

Toys for Tots hits the road

Every year, for one day in December, the roar of engines can be heard down the roads of Grand Cayman as motorcycle riders participate in the Toys for Tots Drive.

Recalling early Christmases in Cayman

Every year, the mention of Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier. I swear that pumpkins, black cats and witches’ hats had barely been cleared away at the beginning of this November before Santa started to appear on the scene.

Concert to feature international opera singer

St. Ignatius on Walkers Road is hosting a number of events this Christmas season, including a market, a night of music provided by its bands and singers, and a Christmas concert on Dec. 8 headlined by soprano Georgina Gatto Deosaran.

Festive Florida concerts in December

As you might expect, most of the concerts and performances scheduled for the coming month are revolving around all that is cheery in the world.

Movies this month at Camana Bay Cinema

There aren’t as many Christmas films as you might expect in December. In fact, it seems there is no rest for superheroes and Marvel and DC both have skin in the game this month with the animated feature “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse” opening a week before “Aquaman

Cayman Comedy Club launches

If you’ve been itching to have your funny bone tickled on a regular basis, the solution starts this weekend at the newly established Cayman Comedy Club, located in Sharkeez bar on the waterfront.

KAABOO auditions local bands

Residents should head to Royal Palms this Saturday night for an epic set of performances, courtesy of some of the islands’ best bands, vocalists and musicians.

Howlingly good Halloween parties

Who doesn’t love dressing up for Halloween? It isn’t just for kids anymore - adults get into it enthusiastically, some planning their costumes for weeks before the date.

Upcoming concerts in South Florida

After a very quiet month for live music, South Florida is coming alive again with many different acts in town. It seems to be nostalgia time as bands from the ‘80s and ‘90s are popping up all over the place.

Grow your MO this MOvember

With the recent passing of Burt Reynolds, it seems that this MOvember, more than ever, men should be sporting their MOs (moustaches) with pride. MOvember is an annual international fundraising effort that also raises awareness about cancers that affect men.

November films at Camana Bay Cinema

Well, things are certainly heating up at the box office this month. Barely off the high of “A Star is Born” and “Venom” (which I have to say, I really enjoyed, so the critics need to lighten up), we enter November where things open with “Bohemian Rhapsody” – the story of Freddie Mercury and the band Queen.

How many oysters would a woodchuck shuck?

Cayman Cocktail Week officially kicks off this weekend, and what better way to start the proceedings than with an oyster and Champagne shucking party?

Discovering the wonders of Clearwater Beach

It was my parents’ 50th anniversary in August, and despite the family getting together for a lovely meal at Blue by Eric Ripert, I still felt we should mark the occasion with a trip of some sort.

Culture at the Cinema: ‘Frankenstein’

It seems only fitting that in October, the month of Halloween, Culture at the Cinema turns to the dark classic story of Frankenstein.

Cayman Drama Society offers family-friendly fare

There is no substitute for a good, old-fashioned fairy tale or well-known story that still enchants all ages. The Cayman Drama Society is bringing them to life through performances and live book readings over the next couple of weeks, creating events to entertain young and old.

October movies at Camana Bay

There are two films I am really keen to see this month: “Venom” and “A Star Is Born.”

Oktoberfests in September

What is the best way to get a jump on all the other Oktoberfest celebrations? Hold yours in September!

Mix drinks at home like a pro

So, you’ve invited the gang around to your house for an evening of fun and beverages. The liquor cabinet is well stocked and you have all the necessary mixers. Everything is set, right? Not necessarily.

Visiting the Mile High City and Beaver Creek Colorado

My brother, his wife and their two children went skiing in Colorado for the first time this year. After hearing their amazing tales of how beautiful Beaver Creek was, I was determined to visit there myself.
